Minimalist Nails

I always see people's dark colored winter manis, and love the way they look. But I can't help myself and reach for bright colors most of the time. I decided I was going to go dark this time. But also was in the mood for a clean nude. Hmm. What to do? I've also been loving gold for a while now, and in my mind gold goes with everything, and I think it definitely worked with this navy & maroon combo.

That being said, my intention for these nails were to do those stripes over sheer nude on all my nails. I had a good breakfast that morning, got a good run in, and got some stuff done on my to-do list, showered and was ready to paint my nails…thinking I had at least 3 hours before going out for a friend's birthday. Get the base coat on and my boyfriend calls. "When will you be ready? They just headed into the city?" OH. I guess I'm simplifying these then. Striped nails became accents and I just did simple gold glitter dots on the rest.

TBH. I like the way they turned out. Something different for me. What do you think?

I used:
  • OPI: Casino Royale
  • OPI: I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw
  • Essie: Sugar Daddy
  • Essie: Good As Gold
  • Lacquistry: Amazeballz
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat
